This collection can be used as a starting point for discussion and personal meditation. It is a tribute to Cynthia Moskowitz Brody that she has a larger vision for the role of art. In a society where artistic endeavors are so often seen as merely a diversion, Brody demonstrates that art can function as a powerful tool for transformation and healing, both for individuals and communities. -- Gillian McCann * Ph.D. Candidate, University Of Toronto *
The results are impressive, the shattering insights offered by poetry are joined with the powerful emotions conveyed by art and enhanced by the fragments of memory and legacy transmitted in story. Because of the variety of authors and the diversity ofpoints of view, 'Bittersweet Legacy' is a document of its time, it conveys with authority the way in which the Holocaust is perceived in our time. -- Michael Berenbaum, director, Sigi Ziering Institute, American Jewish University * Former Director Of The U.S. Holocaust Museum *
How will we remember the darkness of the Holocaust? History provides us with the compelling narrative. Yet, the answers to the perplexing questions raised about the "why" may never be answered. 'Bittersweet Legacy,' however, offers a view of post-Holocaust aesthetics and unique insight into how artists, writers and poets are processing the meaning and message of the Holocaust into the next century. -- Stephen Feinstein, Director of the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, University of Minnesota
An invaluable anthology, Bittersweet Legacy is a belletristic and artistic response to the Shoah and its aftermath. Seventy-four contributors affected directly or indirectly by the greatest tragedy in Jewish history, bear testimony to life lived before, during, and after the horror of genocide and the challenge to continue and sustain that legacy. -- Zev Garber, Los Angeles Valley College, University of California, Riverside
